A Room With a View
A Room With a View | E. M. Forster
The story of young Lucy Honeychurch, traveling through Italy and returning to England during the repressive Edwardian period. At once a romance as well as a critique of English society at the beginning of the 20th century.

My current audiobook. I‘m not a big fun so far and find myself thinking about other things frequently during it. I‘ve been wanting to read more classics but find that I don‘t focus on them well on audio. Maybe I need to actually read them rather than listen to them but that‘ll have to wait until I catch up on my #NetGalley #ARCs.

Moony Oh yes I know this problem. 😑 3w
Buechersuechtling @IvoryLunatic @Moony Funny that it‘s this way for you. I found out that it‘s exactly the other way 'round for me. I can handle classics better/easier when I „read“ them as audiobook. 3w
IvoryLunatic @Buechersuechtling Well I loved the Count of Monte Cristo and The Secret Garden on audio but somehow this one just isnt doing it for me. Maybe it‘s just this specific book. The characters just seem shallow and not interesting to me either. 3w
Sarah83 I know what you mean. I have the same problem. If I listen to a classic, I can't concentrate on it. 3w
Kimberlone I love the movie adaptation of this book with a young Helena Bonham Cartee 3w

Young me was pretty obsessed with the 1985 film of this. I taped it off network TV in the 6th grade (I missed the full monty that was the bathing scene until years later 😆) and watched it over and over. In light of that, I'm not sure what held me back from reading this for so long. I can only say I wish I'd read it sooner ❤ It's light & funny but also has some deeper undertones about class and what's expected of women. Delightful.

Day 4 of #7booksin7days is a love story!

When I read E.M. Forster‘s A Room with a View I wasn‘t sure I liked it very much, but it‘s stuck with me more than many novels I‘ve read since. Set in Florence and England at the turn of the 20th century, the book is about finding love in a restrictive society.

I loved this book from beginning to end. Love the settings, the humor, the colorful characters, and the romance. Lucy and her choices seem progressive for the time period, and I‘m impressed that she was written (so very well) by a man in the early 1900s.

This won‘t be a favourite classic of mine. I enjoyed the historical feel of the book and the conclusion was nice, but I found the middle a bit too twee. I feel the classics give a great insight into behaviour and status of the era in which they are written and I like that they also show how writing has changed over the decades. For me though, the plot was just too flat ⭐️⭐️

"The first fine afternoon drive up to Fiesole, and round by Settignano, or something of that sort."
"No!" cried a voice from the top of the table. "Mr.Beebe, you are wrong. The first fine afternoon your ladies must go to Prato."

Ouch! That hurts.. I'm from Pistoia, the city right next to Prato, and there is an ancient rivalry between these two. It's painfull if someone suggests Prato (and not Pistoia) when you're visiting around Florence.

The reviews I‘ve seen for this book seem to fall quite a bit to one extreme or the other, but I‘m more in the middle. I appreciated the story and the message that the woman should make a conscious decision to do what she feels is right, not just what is expected. However, I doubt that it will stick with me in the long term.

My very own room with a view. It feels like autumn came so quickly this year. This photo is from a week or so ago, and most of the leaves have fallen already. I wish autumn lasted longer. Its beauty is so fleeting.

slategreyskies @Melissa_J We‘re under a winter storm warning for tonight/tomorrow, and the schools are on a two hour delay so far, but I‘m not sure we‘ll end up getting much. Our forecast temperatures are right on the line between sleet and rain. It could go either way. Stay safe tomorrow! Snow days are the best snuggle up and read sort of days! ❄️ 9mo
Melissa_J Unfortunately there is no such thing as a snow day here 😕 We get lots of snow so if stuff closed down every time we got more than a couple of centimetres the city would be shut down from Dec until March 🤣. School buses might get cancelled, but that‘s about it (plus the schools stay open). Hopefully you just get rain cause sleet sucks! And I‘ll cross my fingers we don‘t get as much snow as is being called for. 9mo

Beneath the lovely language and slowly-developing romance are some quite insightful character studies which show people aren‘t always how they seem on the surface (for both good and bad). Not my favourite of the classics, but I did really enjoy the climax and resolution of the book.

#tarottakeover Day 2 The World, card of balance, fulfillment, prosperity, peace of mind. I offer A Room With A View It embodies this card as many characters are blinded by their fears and limitations, even though they travel, they don‘t see the world. Forster‘s ability to reveal insecurities and fearfulness of judgement makes the connections characters do make all the more powerful. The hero of the book for me is Mr. Emerson as he ↙️

jmofo ...sticks to his values and when he sees he might‘ve failed his son by doing so, he vulnerably asks Lucy to help. Characters learn about themselves and their places in the world when they are honest with themselves and each other. I value honesty and skepticism so this book is a real pick me up and dose of hope when I‘m having a tough time. 11mo

Success! I‘ve finished my read of A Room with a View by E. M. Forster. I think overall for me it‘s a 3-3.5 star. I enjoyed it, but it seemed a little slow to start, I was over halfway through the book before it became apparent it was a love story, and this resulted in the romance seeming rushed and ungraceful to me. I was pleased with the ending but had hoped for something more. I will though, enjoying reading more of Forsters works. 🐞

Page 204, I stop and reflect on what makes this work ultimately so stirring and profound. It is just a story. Why should it command such high regard? I play the devil's advocate against myself. But the minute I ask the question, my mind answers,

“It speaks the Truth, that is why.”

And I read on, and soon Mr. Emerson says, "Yes, for we fight for more than Love or Pleasure: there is Truth. Truth counts, Truth does count."

Soon after I started, I was wondering at myself for having delayed this pleasure for so many years. I love this sort of story: a new set of values and self-awareness burgeoning among conventional mores, set among tourists in a gorgeous locale. This book is funny, too, which is not what I expected. I listened to it on the #Libby app, which I have recently downloaded and love. Anyone else use it?

E.M. Forster published this masterpiece in 1908–110 years ago! Enlightened thinking is trying to emerge in the society he describes. The author himself is wonderfully modern and enlightened. And why should that surprise me when Homer is so palpable across the ages?

As long as it took me to finish it, being sidetracked by exams & my SK binge, you‘d think this‘d be a So-So, but it was a solid Pick. Deceptively simple in plot & richly layered. I was charmed by the romantic aspect, but what really had me invested was Lucy Honeychurch uncovering layers to herself & coming into her own, confronting the elitist & sexist norms of the time, grappling with societal expectations, & ultimately being true to herself.

Centique I loved this! Awesome review R 🙌 and this is by far the best cover I‘ve seen 😍 Before I came to Litsy I never worried about which version of a book I owned, now I am growing covetous of all the beautiful editions! 12mo
rohit-sawant @Centique Thank you! :) Totally with you on this being the best cover! I was going to post the plain ol' cover of my digital copy but couldn't resist sharing this when I came across it on Google. 💜 And seeing all the fab editions on here has the same effect on me! 12mo

Got a bit stalled in my tour of Italy for #BackPackEurope with the tagged book, but Florence was beautiful! Art abound, the history rich and people so lively in this story of finding yourself, finding love and finding happiness. The story was a bit cliché (though perhaps this was written before the cliché) but the metaphors and philosophy was wonderful!

kathleenaflynn I liked this book. All the time I had the sense of EMF not saying the thing he was thinking. There was something powerful in that silence. 13mo
